Wai Wai Nu at How Faith-based Peacebuilding Organizations are Navigating the Rise of Nationalism (AFP & ICRD)

April 20, 2022

10:00 - 11:30 (ET) / 15:00 - 16:30 (BST)

Recent years have seen an increase in influence of leaders, parties, and discourses that promote exclusionary nationalism. This growing influence can be seen manifested in the success of Marie Le Pen in the recent elections in France, the "America First" policies promoted by the former US president Donald Trump, the military coup in Myanmar.

This rise of nationalism has had an impact on faith-based peacebuilding organizations and their efforts to build solidarity, and social cohesion, and promote pluralism, diversity, and social justice. In this webinar, we will hear from practitioners about how they are navigating the rise of exclusionary nationalism. We will learn about the strategies they are using to continue to promote inclusion, pluralism and solidarity during a challenging era.

Speakers will include:
Ray Kim, Program Development Consultant at the International Center for Religion and Diplomacy
Wai Wai Nu, Executive Director, Women Peace Network, Myanmar
Panuga Pulenthiran, Research and Program Officer, Coexister France
Maëlys Lossa, International Center for Religion and Diplomacy (Moderator)
